POM as the Entrance to the Mystery School of You

By JC Collins

The only way out is further in.”

Pull the prima materia inward and embrace the forces of self-realization. For the door within is the place where all roads and paths, which develop in the world of matter, become transformative. But know that this merging of experience remains hidden and elusive to those who reject the personal tenets of purpose, order, and pattern.

The externalization of our individual evolution is forced upon us through vast self-imposed manipulation and subjugation. All in this world of force and form serve as a corrupting fragmentation which reverses the process of self-realization. The material world pulls us outward, when it is each of us who must pull the energy of the material world inward.

The Philosopher’s Stone is considered to be the alchemical substance which, when added as an ingredient, can turn base metals into gold. Alchemists throughout time have been searching for this substance, but have never found it. The actual substance has never been described, or defined, outside of symbolic and allegorical references to smell, colour, and other such material characteristics which are captured by the human senses.

The fools gold sought by those who think that material wealth can be gathered by turning basic metals into a precious metal, are destined to crush the potential learnings of this life under the weight of desire and greed. The real alchemical process is the internal evolution of spirit and matter for the purpose of releasing the light which is embedded into the particles of this manifested world.

The Magnum Opus, or Great Work of alchemical transmutation, requires the use of the prima materia to shape the Philosopher’s Stone. The shaping of this stone amounts to the drawing of order from the chaos of untempered and immoral material existence. It is the masonic Perfected Ashlar Stone which is carved from the uneven edges of the Rough Ashlar Stone. It is the cornerstone which each individual temple is built upon.

The prima materia is the adversity of the material world. In essence, the terms prima materia and adversarial force are synonymous with one another. Both describe the same thing. Adversity is built within the fabric of the material world as a form of embedded spiritual curriculum. When we learn from this adversity we begin to develop and shape our stone. When we don’t learn, our stone remains rough hewn and chaos controls our lives.

Based on this understanding, it can be determined that the Philosopher’s Stone is, in fact, the function of learning through self-realization. This process has been retarded through the externalization of our internal deficiencies and imbalances. We project our low level of spiritual education out onto the sponge-like prima materia.

The problem is that we are not learning the lessons which this adversity is meant to teach us. As such, the excessive adversity builds up in the world sponge, and the effects upon our existence becomes compounded.

The only way out is further in.

We pull the prima materia inward and process the lessons to develop our ability for self-realization. This self-realization leads to the symbiotic evolution of spirit and matter. It is the transition from self-realization to symbiotic evolution which is defined as the final achievement of the Philosopher’s Stone. It is a journey from the immature child to the mature adult. It’s the coming of age script which is injected into all of our fairy tales and popular stories.

The fragmentation which we often discuss is also connected to the process. Alchemy refers to the reverse of this fragmentation as “multiplication”. All stalks of wheat are the fragmentation of the one stalk of wheat. The one stalk of wheat is reproduced through multiplication. But there is still only the one concept of a stalk of wheat. A field full of millions of stalks becomes one field of wheat, and so on, as the micro and macro patterns are projected from within the construct of the prima materia.

The same applies to all material things in the world of force and form.

The process of alchemical multiplication (fragmentation) is harnessed to enhance the potency and effectiveness of the Philosopher’s Stone. This is because we should draw the prima materia inward for the purpose of self-realization. Understanding that there is one stalk of wheat offers valuable lessons. The multiplication of that stalk of wheat provides a richer experience. But without learning and self-realization, that multiplication becomes the more destructive fragmentation, and the adversarial force grows in strength due to our inability to draw inward and learn.

When we embrace the diverse beauty and wonder which the multiplication of the prima materia provides, we can begin the process of re-birth and reconciliation. The evolution of spirit and matter can proceed, and the Philosopher’s Stone is shaped and formed out of the chaos of the fading ignorance.

The metrics of esoteric patterns and world trends are the mental and spiritual measurements we use to quantify and understand the Philosopher’s Stone. This has been the purpose of POM (Philosophy of Metrics) from the beginning. PrimNomics and the Grand Man series are but individual lessons meant to be internalized within each of our own mystery schools. As individuals we extract what we need and internalize that educational material for the purpose of self-discovery and self-realization, or as one reader writes to herself – self-actualization.

The ultimate product of the evolution between spirit and matter is the release of light from within the prima materia. This translucent matter is the alchemical gold, and represents the next manifestation of light from the Son. The child matures and becomes the father, or parent.

We spread a corrupt form of this process throughout our material existence. The multiplication becomes fragmentation. With the esoteric and symbolic gold as the objective, we fragment the concept with the externalization of human time and labor. The metrics of time are measured in decades, years, months, weeks, hours, minutes, and seconds. Labor is measured through remuneration based on time spent labouring. This remuneration is a replication of the Sun gold we seek through the corrupt process of ignorance and fragmentation. This money is collected in the thousands, hundreds, dollars, cents, and applied to material assets based on collective worth.

This is the reason there is a POM focus on the international monetary system and economics, with geopolitics being the extension of economic policy. All of these areas merge together under the alchemical transmutation of the prima materia. The prima materia can only be shaped and formed through an internal process of self-realization. This is why I have always directed the responsibilities of the corrupt world back towards us as individuals. Blaming someone else, some organization, some shadowy banker group, or adversarial force, serves as a projection and further corruption of the process.

The lessons are not learned. The adversarial force is within each one of us.

The only way out is further in.

Embrace the multiplication of the material world and harness the power of the prima materia to shape your own stone. Pull it all inward and move towards self-realization. Anything that attempts to shift your focus from inward to outward is a corrupted process which will never perfect your stone or complete the alchemical transmutation.

Even drawing attention to the process, as we have here, serves as a corruption. This is why the ancients attempted to teach these valuable lessons through parables and allegory. But we no longer have the time wait. Straight talk is needed, as the sponge is now saturated, and the material world is beginning to vibrate at an enhanced frequency. This vibration is the destructive emptiness, and unrealized potential, which is growing between spirit and matter.

The symbiotic evolution of, and reconciliation between, spirit and matter, is represented by the double-headed eagle under one crown. Two become one. The two have always been just one. The crown (of the sun – light) has been used to represent royalty. At one time royalty was an attribute of those wise and learned individuals who have evolved the ability to shape their own stone, and use that power for the betterment of all.

Real leadership is the ability to encourage others to empower themselves. Providing the freedom and encouragement to seek this self-empowerment is the purpose of law and governance. All worthwhile efforts should be focused on this one purpose.

No advancement in technologies, such as trans-humanism, particle physics, totalitarian governance structures (whether liberal-left or conservative-right), consolidated monetary frameworks, or the splitting of atoms, can successfully replicate this process. There is no shortcut. There is no cheating. There is only the one door which provides an entrance from this world to the realm of transformation. This door is inside of you. That is the direction we need to be traveling.

The only way out is further in.

We can expand across the macro universe and it will not change a single thing. We can explore the depths of the micro-atomic worlds, and it will cause further fragmentation. Only through the esoteric heart can the door be discovered.

You are your own mystery school. Enrol now and begin the journey of self-discovery. — JC

  1. Fascinating, but still perplexing. The world adversarial force spoken of in many writings is within each of us? Is it akin to the id, or is that off base? Seeking enlightenment within makes sense if we are each a spark of Perfect
    Creation. It makes little sense if we are all fallen and failed, which is the foundational premise of most faiths. But how to make the journey within more than pointless naval gazing? What are the signposts of a journey heading in the right direction?

    1. The sign posts are rightminded actions and living, as well as an acceptance to learn. When we observe our existence here without the conditioning which begins at birth, we see that this is a school. Everything is part of the curriculum. You will know if you are moving in the right direction. As long as you are honest with yourself. Pull the world inside of you and feel its fullness, it’s completeness, its creative energy. By pulling it in you remove the illusion of space and division. Now use that energy to grow and empower others.

  2. Poor boy lost his mind, it happens. Philosophy is a crazy business, got to know that going in. Just kidding JC, wonderment of a post, I will examine it and other comments and get back to the POM later.
    Thanks for your heart, thanks for your soul and spirit.

    1. Actually Dane, the depicted eagle is the worst part of an otherwise excellent post.
      The eagle is the “screaming” type (as in Austria/Russia, the Russians have that one wrong), holds two swords (!) and is fully symmetrical.

      Look for better designs having the heads observing (Byzantine) and holding a sword and an orb (Russian/Austrian/Byzantine) on distinct sides.
      The best — in my humble opinion — is the Scottish rite double eagle: two distinct sides, a force side and a thought side. The force side gases toward the earth, the thought side towards the heavens. It holds one single sword, the force side is grasping for the handle, the thought side is holding it by the blade. Perfect balance without symmetry.

      the symbol is just that: a symbol. The meaning is hidden in the form.
      The rest of this excellent post is also largely symbolic

      Regards to all
      Vasiles

      1. Noted sidir. But it’s still a very nice two headed eagle😁 for the POM. Force/masculine/function, thought/feminine/form just schematics. Why leave the girl defenseless? It’s become such a cruel world perhaps these days she needs a sword to keep balance. Perhaps the days of balance are behind us and she is here to rule for a while. Some here are knights for right which takes thought. As such a sword in the side of right makes sense also.

        The Scottish rite eagle is awesome also and is very nice for what it symbolizes.

        I tell you what though, I’ll take the symbolic nature of POM over the golden arches of McDonald’s, the big orange sign for Home Depot and John McCains theatrical vote for keeping the Affordable Health Care Act.

        Lol. You know what just dawned on me. He didn’t even announce it or anything so your position is based on a thought in your own head. Maybe he didn’t want it to be like the others but instead unique to POM.

        But the more I look the more it looks like an attack on me personally. For my choice of liking a symbol…really?

        Maybe I just don’t understand your point. Sorry it’s been a long day.

          1. Thank you sidir it was a better day. Do you prefer sidir or Vasiles? The only thing I can say on thought is…

            I think I thunk a thought. But if I think I thunk a thought, what was the thought that I think I thunk? lol.

  3. So the one headed eagle would be the expression of world adversarial forces? This would mean it is the symbol for those who covet or live by the guide if their own adversarial forces Instead of choosing to live by the guide of right?

    Oh but evil may not know that it is evil at all. Would this mean they are not living their truth? Blind followers, devout believers that they have made a correct choice…. folks come to mind.

    To me this adversarial force is that voice within that tries to use tricks to get me step off the path of right. I guess its like UPS trucks only making right turns to deliver packages…

    “By favoring right-hand turns at all times — unless a left is unavoidable — the carrier saves millions of gallons of fuel each year, and avoids emissions equivalent to over 20,000 passenger cars.

    The practice started decades ago, before computers and GPS, and is now managed by a software that conjures the most efficient route for each truck.

    What’s wrong with turning left?

    Left-hand turns are generally considered unsafe and wasteful on right-hand driving roads, such as those in the US.

    “Left-turning traffic typically has to turn against a flow of oncoming vehicles,” explains Tom Vanderbilt, author of the book “Traffic: Why we drive the way we do.””

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/02/16/world/ups-trucks-no-left-turns/index.html

    A lot of brain power went into figuring that out. Plus it’s a hidden message to us about how doing right pays off.

    1. This one is bothering me. How can all forces under a one headed eagle symbol be world adversarial forces? Not likely, it’s just a symbol that anyone could walk under at some point or another. No there’s more to this.
      Good one JC.

  4. If I contemplate / meditate (sort of navel gazing) on a regular basis, I notice a difference in what I understand about the bigger picture of how the inward is related to the outward. It is finding calm and letting go. Letting go of the mind and emotions to let something more pure come in.

  5. This was a great read. Thank you. Two elements of this article really caught my attention. They were:
    You are your own mystery school. Enrol now and begin the journey of self-discovery.
    What a fantastic comment. Also:
    …the material world is beginning to vibrate at an enhanced frequency.
    This wrestled with my curiosity, so I looked into the frequency of the earth and discovered something known as the Schumann Resonance. Many of you are probably familiar with this term, as it is a massive subject, but if not here is NASA to give a quick rundown:
    What is a Schumann Resonance?
    Schumann Resonance

    There seems to be alot of New-Agey mumbo jumbo on this topic, but the science behind the Schumann Resonance is quite fascinating. So I thought I’d share a small amount of what I blundered into.

    Quote from National Center for Biotechnology Information:
    …Earlier work of Neil Cherry showed a strong scientific evidence that the human brain waves frequencies are highly correlated to the Schumann Resonance (SR) signal. The SRs are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. SRs are global electromagnetic resonances, excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. SRs are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum beginning at 3 Hz and extend to 60 Hz, appearing as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.83 (fundamental), 14.3, 20.8, 27.3, and 33.8 Hz.

    Quote from Neil Cherry’s work Human intelligence: the brain, an electromagnetic system synchronised by the Schumann Resonance signal.:
    …The human brain is a biological organ. On one hand it is soft, flexible and adaptive, but on the other hand is relatively stable and coherent with well developed intelligence. In order to retain intelligent thinking in a soft and adaptive organ there needs to be a constant, globally available, synchronization system that continuously stabilizes the brain. Rapid intelligence and reactions requires and electromagnetic signalling system, supported by a biochemical system. The Schumann Resonance signal provides a brain frequency range matching electromagnetic signal, providing the synchronization needed for intelligence.

    Quote from National Center for Biotechnology Information:
    …Our results confirm the measurements reported by earlier researchers that demonstrated unexpected similarities in the spectral patterns and strengths of electromagnetic fields generated by the human brain and the earth-ionospheric cavity.

    Quote from National Center for Biotechnology Information:
    …Overall, this suggests that daily autonomic nervous system activity not only responds to changes in solar and geomagnetic activity, but is synchronized with the time-varying magnetic fields associated with geomagnetic field-line resonances and Schumann resonances.

    Anyways, quite intriguing.

    1. Very intriguing Darren. Perhaps this is why it is important for us to visit a quiet space in nature from time to time. So we can get realigned or re-tuned back to mother earth’s frequency.

      Have you ventured into what happens when the frequency is disrupted yet? Or harmonic distortion?

      1. Tesla was undoubtedly on to something when he said, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

      2. Hey Dane, the following article doesn’t deal in frequencies as such but it does compliment your thought process – The effects of grounding (earthing) on inflammation, the immune response, wound healing, and prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases:
        …Multi-disciplinary research has revealed that electrically conductive contact of the human body with the surface of the Earth (grounding or earthing) produces intriguing effects on physiology and health. Such effects relate to inflammation, immune responses, wound healing, and prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

        I haven’t really looked any further down the Schumann Resonance rabbit hole. It was just an interesting sidebar to the POM article. It appears the Earth is one big electrical circuit and we are all little components that complete it.

        1. Thats pretty cool Darren. When getting into nature I like to take a little (motor propelled) canoe into the Florida everglades for some peace and quiet. I’ve noticed that dipping my feet over the edge and into the ocean quickens the calming peace of mind. Thankfully it’s quicker because it’s not called shark river for nothing 🙂 but there are areas to relax and…degauss the body much like the degauss button on old picture tube televisions to clear up the picture.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Degaussing

          What’s interesting in this linked degaussing explanation is “and to destroy data held on magnetic storage.” Okay not like Clinton’s hard drive….pause for laughter…

          If the accumulated conditioned information built up in our Reticular Activating System (RAS) is like a hard drive then perhaps a human degauss to the bias resonant frequency of earth could possibly destroy the accumulated conditioned information in our RAS much as it erases magnetically stored information from a hard drive.

          Not sure if you were here when we discussed the RAS but just in case here is the post.

          And a short video

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCnfAzAIhVw

          Thanks Darren.

    2. I believe that our shielding from the earth’s vibrational frequencies, via concrete/steel/overwhelming-emf-pollution is a significant health issue. Personally, I use a NASA inspired technology to help overcome that.
      I think that getting away from all the civilized interference/blocking is a better alternative… but I can’t see myself living on a mountain top WITHOUT my mobile phone!
      How would I receive POM articles up there?

    1. I’m not sure what you’re asking. If you are asking me to comment on the relationship between the Catholic Church and the topic I wrote about, I would say that the Church is a master creation of spiritual misdirection.

  6. Gosh I keep picturing a black hole as an external representation of this inward message in regards to the world of matter. The singularity or gravitational center of the black hole could be like our heart pulling life inward.

    I just realized….Interstellar…lmao.

  7. Mr. Collins:

    Yes! I was referring to the relationship between the Catholic Church and the topic of your most recent post. The “Church” is most assuredly a master creation of spiritual misdirection, along with fleecing their flocks, homosexuality, pedophilia, and a few occasional child sacrifices.

  8. Sorry this is off topic of this post but one we have been discussing through the one belt one road.

    The world watches as the US struggles to not let N. Korea get nuclear capabilities all while China and India are silently fighting over a land dispute….China AND India both have nuclear capabilities so why isn’t the world concerned about this dispute? Oh and Pakistan isn’t far away and they too have nuclear capabilities so the question is why isn’t the US or UN speaking out about these other nuclear armed countries who are currently in a land dispute.

    1. September 5, 2017 – “Xi tells Modi healthy, stable China-India ties needed”

      “XIAMEN, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) — President Xi Jinping on Tuesday said healthy and stable relations between China and India are in line with the fundamental interests of their people.

      China is willing to work with India on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence to improve political mutual trust, promote mutually beneficial cooperation, and push Sino-Indian ties along the right track, he said.”

      “The Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence are: mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, non-interference in each other’s internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit, and peaceful coexistence.

      The principles were endorsed by China and India in the 1950s, and have been widely accepted as norms for relations between countries.”

      http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2017-09/05/c_136585860.htm

      Hmm, The Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence are: mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity (hello it’s a land dispute…#1 fail), mutual non-aggression (no nukes were fired…#2 win so far), non-interference in each other’s internal affairs (China is supposed to be involving Pakistan to put pressure on India…#3 fail), equality and mutual benefit (perhaps the cause of the land dispute in the first place so perhaps this is in negotiations…#4 status pending), and peaceful coexistence (umm, how can peaceful coexistence be a principle for peaceful coexistence?…#5 hmm I don’t know about this one, any ideas?).

  9. Dane:

    I suspect that the comments in your post are based upon the false assumption that the lame stream and prostitute media are logical, reasonable, and fair arbiters of truth. North Korea is the designated bogyman du jour or squirrel of the day for the purposes of distractions.

    China, India, and Pakistan with their respective nukes are not part of the meme or script at present for the programming of the disorganized and unwashed masses to consume.

    Oz

  10. I enjoyed reading this post as I enjoy all encouragements to look within.

    I hope all who follow your advice, won’ be confused by the lack of distinct form inside. Or by the sudden absence of logic. Or by temporary surges of the senses…

    Like the stalk of wheat, there is only one man. And he exists in all states already. Nothing to achieve, just to realize 😉

    For those who have difficulty locating the inside: it is at zero distance from You (not from your body; your body is at a small distance from you)

  11. Fully aware of all that Oz.

    Just pointing out what many probably don’t even see happening because they are so focused on N. Korea. Like a magician using slight of hand in a magic trick. Pointing out were the trick is usually spoils the trick. Spoil enough tricks and sometimes it turns the tables.

    So no false assumptions here friend.

  12. Dane:

    I did not have any doubts concerning your awareness of the abilities, nefarious intents, and evil purposes of the lame stream and prostitute media to distract, lie, and omit.

    Best regards my fellow POM member.

  13. I felt this article by the great veteran investigative journalist Jon Rappaport about, Antony Sutton, Skull&Bones, Hitler, the Bush family, would be a nice fit for this thread. As has been discussed on POM, technology transfer is also a method of control the balance of power and to control the earth’s resources. In this regard, the North Korean, The Soviet, Israeli, Pakistani, Indian nuclear tech. and others are not domestic technology but literally given out to these powers either covertly or overtly. That also includes the Iranian Mullahs nuclear energy, although the French and German companies were building the Bushehr nuclear plant in the 1970’s under the Imperial Iran governance which was never finished because of the Islamists in power in 1979 and later completed by the Russians.

    The late Sutton’s work in shedding light on the sinister forces is legendary IMHO and he suffered a great deal because of revealing the puppet masters behind the show…

  14. What I takeaway from the York and Scottish rites is that the;

    Scottish rite allows its members religious freedom. They find unity in a core universal set of values. This thinking creates societies modelled from these same core values. This allows for diversity and common sense.

    York rite tells its members what religion or faith they will follow. This thinking creates conforming societies modelled from these same core values. It causes fragmented ignorance to keep power and control over its societies. This creates fear, violence and wars.

    Problem with this in America is that she was founded on religious freedom, after being conquered from her native peoples consequently. So the York rite is in direct contradiction to America’s core values but the Scottish rite is in alignment with them. I wonder if the Scottish rite settlers wanted to integrate with the natives but the York rite wanted to conform/conquer the natives.

    The Scottish rite encourages diversity so adversity arises for us to learn from through acceptance of them through understanding. This gives us experience, life experience which is most likely the human purpose. The York rite kills all this potential for life experience because under its influence,

    “We project our low level of spiritual education out onto the sponge-like prima materia.

    The problem is that we are not learning the lessons which this adversity is meant to teach us. As such, the excessive adversity builds up in the world sponge, and the effects upon our existence becomes compounded.

    “The only way out is further in.””

    What an excellent essay JC.

  15. I fear I may be a little late getting back to this post, but I had to struggle with it for a day or two. In that time I was for reason unknown to me drawn back to a long lost love, I have had with Kubrick’s Space odyssey 2001. I can’t honestly remember when was the last time I viewed this film, but my felling is it was either before or at the very beginning of my philosophic journey. Since I don’t really believe anyone can accurately date, when it is a person begins that journey(unless it is at inception) I’ll say I hadn’t viewed the film for 10/15 years. So for a time frames sake, I say my introduction to any serious study of philosophy began the three years or so I’ve been a member of POM up until I was more entertained by the philosophic concepts in important films than deeply affected.

    With that in mind, I’ll begin by saying. I feel that stumbling across the POM site was to me akin to the apes in SO21 stumbling across the monument, and by touching it their (or our, if one chooses to believe that way) began a new step in our evolution/ transmutation journey. A hero’s journey if I may add. The monument or monuments, we stumble across while going through our life’s, from great pyramids, to obelisk, to great works of art including music, great books and all the things they symbolize, that transform us, I add the POM.

    Hey JC, does that make up for the smart ass, a bit of a snide comment I made earlier in this post? Good. I hope. One last thing, The POM and all it’s great contributors is the only relationship I have with a serious philosophy. I’m finding it spilling over and beginning to fill the time I’m not on the site with a sense of philosophical strength. For that I say thanks.

    1. Hello Dear Pieter,

      I agree with everything you so elaborately said. Like you, I don’t know when my interest began but I think this journey happens at one’s birth. In fact, my black and white childhood photos show the little me with a face like saying “WTF” and possibly “what is the meaning of all this” and even “why the heck am I here and what am I doing here”? I can tell you, having an inquisitive mind is both a curse and a blessing. I am undecided as to which is worse.

      Again, I am a big fan of the late Stanley Kubrick and his 2001, Path of Glory and above all his “Barry Lyndon” which I absolutely adore. The cinematography is absolute artwork and he used “NASA” Zeiss made lenses with minimal light using only the natural “candle light” in a few indoor scenes. Stanly Kubrick really gave meaning the term, the seventh art.

      I also read JC’s POM and fantastic comments by POM members and they all linger in my mind for days so I have to thank JC as well as the noble POM contributors too for taking my mind off the mundane day-to-day life.

      Wish you a very happy Sunday

  17. I just read this brilliant posting on Dr. Vasseghi’s Facebook page regarding Nikola Tesla and his esoteric mission. He was a true genius in both worldly knowledge and he understood the esoteric nature of reality.

    “Religions and philosophies teach that man can become the Christ, Buddha and Zoroaster. What I’m trying to prove is wilder, and almost unattainable. This is what to do in the Universe so every being is born as Christ, Buddha or Zoroaster. I know that gravity is prone to everything you need to fly and my intention is not to make flying devices (aircraft or missiles), but teach individual to regain consciousness on his own wings … Further; I am trying to awake the energy contained in the air. There are the main sources of energy. What is considered as empty space is just a manifestation of matter that is not awakened. No empty space on this planet, nor in the Universe… In black holes, what astronomers talk about, are the most powerful sources of energy and life.”

    ~ statement by the genius Serbo-Croatian-American inventor Nikola Tesla in an 1899 interview…

    …the ultimate pride of all peoples of Iranian stock (dozens of tribes across Asia & Europe) is in having had Zoroaster and Cyrus in their national history… great role models especially at a time of chaos and confusion!!!

    …Iranian beliefs, often labeled as Zoroastrianism, taught Free Will and the human active role in choosing between Good vs. Evil… Monism is an Iranian view as kept in subsequent Iranian-based religions & philosophies such as Sufism…

    [pic Heritage Institute: the image here is the Chinvat Bridge from an Iranian Sogdian-Zoroastrian Funerary Couch found in China, now at Miho Museum in Japan… According to Bruce Duensing, “One could fall back onto the duality represented by the innovation of a religious theology invented by Zoroaster and also promulgated as an extension by the Egyptians. In this case of dualism you have a metaphysical basis of dualism expressed by a brotherhood of light versus a brotherhood of darkness. In the case of Zoroaster, the realms occupied by meta-realities and that of sensate reality are bridged literally by the image of the Chinvat Bridge that serves as a means of conveyance from one realm to the other, which has been replaced by the metaphor of light energy being channeled within the linearity of a tunnel, solar light being the source of living organism whether they be as intangible as thought or as physical as the body. In both cases of Alien Abduction and Near Death Experience the simulation of light unites them”… for educational purposes only]
